About James T. Seith, SAMS® AMS®
Stateline Marine Surveyors, James T. Seith, SAMS® AMS® , Winthrop Harbor, Illinois, USAStateline Marine Surveyors, James T. Seith, SAMS® AMS® , Winthrop Harbor, Illinois, USA As a United States Marine, served as Chief Coxswain and Chief Mechanic for Special Operations Company FOX 2/5 for three years, supervising 20 plus Marines. Coordinated all on-water operations, and assured readiness of coxswains, boats, engines and all equipment. Extensive training in boat handling and formations, maritime navigation, search and rescue, safety boat operations and boat operations in high seas during night operations. Responsible for all engine repair operations on Johnson & Evinrude engines on land and at sea. Honorable Discharge. Recipient of Navy Marine Corps Achievement Medal.

Military, Manufacture, and Dealer Certified Marine Technician with 23 unbroken years of service. Over 20,000 hours of hands on training while working at some of the most well known and respected High Performance, Sport Boat, Sport Fish, and Yacht dealers in the industry.

My Marine Technician experience includes everything from pre-trade in inspections, to warranty work. Complete mechanical inspections on all makes and models of engines, transmissions, power heads, stern drives, and gear cases. Rigging of new boats from 16 feet, to 60 plus feet. Removal, repair, inspection, and installation of engines, transmissions, generators, AC/Heat units, galley equipment, windlass, head and holding tank components, electronics and radar systems, and all other accessories that are found on vessels of these different sizes. A boat has many different systems that are all unique in there own way. Complete knowledge of these systems is very important for a marine surveyor to posses.

At the Chapman School of Seamanship Survey Course I received 180 hours in theory and field experience in Hull Design & Construction, Support Systems, Propulsion & Auxiliary Systems and Business, Professional & Legal Considerations. This course has been rated as the best Marine Survey course in the country. Also at Chapman, I completed the "Fundamentals of the Damage and Claims Survey" course in the spring 2008.

Stateline Marine Surveyors has completed hundreds of marine surveys, appraisals, and mechanical inspections. We have done wood boats from the 1950's, sailboats over 70 feet, offshore boats up in the 150+ MPH range, and 70 plus foot motor yachts. We have worked for some of the most well known insurance and finance companies out there, and our work has never been declined or rejected, only complimented. Stateline Marine Surveyors was deployed down to Galveston Texas and was attached to a "Marine Catastrophe Unit" for Hurricane Ike in 2008, and again deployed to the east coast for Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

When you hire me as surveyor I only work for YOU, and do not report to anybody else but you. My job as a surveyor is to protect you and your family both physically and financially. A boat is a fun but expensive investment. I have not surveyed a boat with out at least a couple little things wrong with it, even brand new. Although a survey is not a guarantee, it is the cheapest insurance you can get, knowing that your not buying somebody else's problems. Peace of Mind is Key in Boating!
